Child molestors also tend to be family members.


Quoting Anonymous:

Child molesters tend to be male. That would be my reason.


Quoting OregonNative:

I guess I'm not understanding why a woman is inherently more trustworthy than a man.



Quoting Anonymous:


Yes, as long as I trust her qualifications as a care giver.



Quoting OregonNative:

So, you'll allow a strange woman around your kids, but not a strange man?

Interesting.




Quoting Anonymous:



Sure. I wouldn't hire a male babysitter with any sexual orientation, just because I don't allow strange men around my daughter, no matter how perfect he is, but I would hire a lesbian babysitter.

How was I "demeaning" her? I was simply curious.


Quoting AJB163:

Uh, because thats her preference... Thats why? She owes no explanation as to why she prefers female over male. No need to demean her preference and opinion.

Actually that's not true. Child molesters are most commonly a non related male.

I wouldn't ask what a candidate's sexual orientation was....but if I knew, I wouldn't care.

Yes. My DD's regular sitter since she was born has been my BFF, who's gay. She's spent a few hours of nearly every day of her life with him.

If they had the best qualifications, yes. Their gayness wouldn't factor into my decision at all.

Ha ha, YES I would! Why not?

That way I would not have to worry about the "possibility" of my fiance cheating.

He told me if we ever got a nanny she would HAVE to be "hot"...um...NO!

I would not let him pick "hot" young straight girl so he can ogle her.
